Simple Music Ensemble World is a Chamber Music Community that raises concerts on the world’s best stages and unites professional musicians from different countries who sincerely love their work. The team is multifaceted and is continuously developing, introducing new ideas, expanding the boundaries of their creative activity.

“Spirited Away” is a cult work of the great Japanese storyteller Hayao Miyazaki. This is the first animated film that won the Academy Award as the best full-length cartoon. This is a story about a little girl who finds herself in a mysterious world and goes through many trials to save her parents from the charms of an evil witch.

Each cartoon by Hayao Miyazaki is a separate world with its own rules, philosophy and ideas. The magical music of the composer Joe Hisaishi, who acts as his full co-author, has become an important part of Miyazaki’s artistic language. Hisaishi writes the soundtrack not after the film has already been created, but in parallel with its production. The composer, after receiving a short description of the film, on its basis composes music. Hisaishi uses all kinds of music in his works: from orchestral melodies to the advanced Japanese electronics of the eighties.

Simple Music Ensemble World will feature the music by Joe Hisaishi in its own unique arrangements. These melodies will take our listeners into the magical world of Hayao Miyazaki, where evil is always stronger at first, but in the end good always triumphs over it.

Every Simple Music Ensemble World concert is a memorable event, filled with vibrant impressions and genuine emotions. The band performs in various group casts, ranging from trios to septets. Regardless of the number of members, the musicians create an amazing atmosphere in a concert hall, which attracts the audience and encourages them to attend these performances.

Tickets for this event are sold via the Simple Music Ensemble World website.
